If you have a chance, walk under the bridge and look at the underside of the arch. The bridge is sharply skewed and the masonry has to make a matching twist. Does anyone still know how to do this?
This is one of the few areas where I feel I am in the 'old Wigan'.
Robin, the best example of skewed brickwork I know, is the bridge at the end of Danes Avenue Hindley going into Borsdane wood, that is a belter.
Its only skewed; when youv had a few pints and your skewed...
wow does this bring back good memories I used to walk every day under that bridge to All Saints School, its changed a lot since the 1950's I now live in Las Vegas.NV USA I also remember the cows running through frog lane
i remember goin to the cattle market when i was about 10 , a bit further down on the corner of prescot street
I used to walk down this road from Wigan college in the late 1980's. There was a shop further down the road (going away from the town centre) called Wigan Bankrupt Stock where I bought my first electric guitar. I live in Worcestershire now so I've no idea if the shop has gone. Anyone know?
Well johnb my son bought a 12 stringer from there about 10 year back but not been down theer for yonks, his band is Stormy Corner but he don,t play the twelve init although it does get played on acoustic nights.
